AA Conventions

Postby Roman James » Mon Nov 21, 2016 3:43 pm

With a little over 100 days of sobriety and still learning about the program, I am interested in checking out conventions. How can I obtain a schedule of cities and dates for upcoming conventions? I'm also curious what exactly happens at these conventions? Any help would be appreciated.

They basically have a bunch of meetings, workshops, etc. Each Area has their own, I've not seen any single list of different conventions in different places.

Hi Roman

Congrats on 100 plus days of sobriety!

There are different AA conventions, round-ups, conferences, retreats, etc going on just about every month somewhere in southern California. You can usually find a schedule at the AA Los Angeles or Orange County district office websites or on bulletin boards at local Alano clubs. Some areas also host what is known as "alkathons" during the holiday season which are back to back meetings hosted by different local AA groups in one locations.

Call your local Intergroup. You can follow the links to your State and or Area & District through AA General Service Office - for inside or outside the United States.

If I'm not able to say how I'm working my program today, then I'm not working my program.
